Upright Protection Range

The Rack Armour upright protector has been a global success for over a decade, its innovative design and functionality has revolutionised racking protection and the way it should perform forever.

With proven cost savings of up to 80% in the world’s largest retail companies, Rack Armour is an attractive proposition for any warehouse with pallet racking, but before you make any decisions let’s tell you how Rack Armour works and the immediate benefits of installing the guard…

Colour/Detection: Rack Armour’s colour is of immense importance, it creates a focal point for drivers of mechanical handling equipment and gives them a definitive indicator of their safe working limitations. Rack Armour comes as a standard hi-visibility yellow, but is also available in green and red colours for one way systems or to highlight fire equipment and first aid areas.

Tough Outer Shell: Rack Armour’s outer shell is made from an exceptionally resilient and hard wearing plastic designed to take high velocity impact. The shape of the shell was designed to repel and deflect impact away from the upright, in turn reducing damage significantly.

Impact Diffusing Foam Interior: Something that sets Rack Armour apart from the competition is its closed cell foam interior. Acting as a cushion between the racking and the plastic shell, the specialist foam diffuses impact energy and diverts the kinetic energy away from the racking upright, saving you money and time on a replacement leg.

Tough Outer Shell: Rack Armour comes as standard at 600mm high, as this area was proven in extensive testing to receive the brunt of all impacts from mechanical handling equipment. The guard is also available at 300mm high, and comes in 3 varieties which together accommodate all racking sizes and types.

Ease of installation: Thanks to Rack Armour’s unique shape, the guard can easily be installed by hand on any racking type, this enables Rack Armour to be fitted in seconds without the use of power tools and drilling needless holes into your warehouse floor. Rack Armour is also the first and only plastic protector product on the market that’s fitted by hand which doesn’t disengage the racking from everyday pallet retrieval operations. This is something that sets us apart from any other product on the market today.

Zero floor damage: Often metal systems are drilled to the concrete which in turn takes the brunt of every impact the guard takes, the impact energy disperses to the floor and the fixings. This often leaves the floor crumbling and weak. Rack Armour requires no fixtures or fittings, it simply clips onto your upright giving you peace of mind that your floor and racking is in good hands.

Green product: Totally recyclable, Rack Armour upright protectors are up to 7 times lighter than most metal protection systems on the market, it’s also proven to fit 16 times more units on a standard UK pallet, further reducing your transport cost and emissions.

Colour/Detection: Standard metal systems are often a drab and dull metallic colour making them almost unnoticeable to warehouse staff. Rack Armour barriers are a striking high visibility yellow, making them detectable to mechanical handling equipment operators, this in the first instance helps stop impacts from occurring at all.

Strength: Rack Armour barriers flex and absorb impacts which would render metal systems useless. They have a unique feature which enables the product to reform to its original shape after impact, giving you a product which can concede impacts all day every day and look like it’s been untouched hours later.

No painting: Rack Armour barriers are made from a solid high visibility plastic, this gives our barriers a clean and tidy appearance even after years of service and numerous impacts. Metal systems can often appear tired and in need of repair, a level of maintenance is required including painting which takes time and money.

Minimal Floor Damage: A standard metal barrier has no absorption qualities, this means that all the impact energy from collisions transfer straight down to the expensive concrete floor. This in most cases leaves you with not only a damaged barrier that needs replacing, but also a crumbled floor that needs relaying can be extremely expensive and time consuming work. A Rack Armour barrier flexes and absorbs impact energy through its unique foam interior, eliminating any transferable energy away from your floor, in turn saving you thousands in repair costs.

Absorption: Rack Armour barriers use the same unique foam diffuser as in the upright protector, helping to diffuse impact energy whilst a collision takes place.
